Old Beams

We found a yard full of beams.  There were almost all white oak.  I think there were over 20 truckloads.  The wood was cribbing8x8’s and around 8′ long.  The whole thing went in two days.  Fast moving industry at times!

banded and ready to go

All Barns Are Not Red

When I was a kid in elementary school, I drew a picture of a farm.  It had brown cows, green grass, and the sun was yellow.  The problem was the barn was green.

My teacher took one look at my artwork and proclaimed, “All Barns Are Red!”  I didn’t believe her and refused to make my barn red.  I claimed that I saw a green barn but she immediately rejected that claim and humiliated me in front of the class.

For all of you teachers that still think that all barns are red, I ask you to look at the ‘Green’ barn board shown here.  I can assure you that all barns are not red… we at Wisconsin Barn Board and Beam have some white ones, some brown ones, and yes, some green ones.

Just wanted to let you know!


Here's proof!
